As of today, I am no longer blogging under this platform… Sad, I know… but I have now redirected to wordpress.org so that I can better express myself and begin a new journey while exploring my freelance makeup artistry!  The site is still a work in progress, and while it’s nothing perfect, it will come along with time! Go ahead and check it out: www.bellamechelle.com.

I’ve been really caught up on this whole exfoliating thing lately… mainly because it makes your skin super soft and more touchable.

A simple nudge on the warm always generates a great response… I love it!

In all honesty I can say that there really isn’t a lotion that I use to make my skin soft and plush.  Actually, scratch that… baby oil gel works wonders right out of the shower.  Anyway, I’ve been experimenting with exfoliating different parts of the body other than the obvious.

First, try exfoliating your LIPS.   Your lips always get dry, especially during the winter, and sometimes can leave them looking crusty and unattractive (even with your alleged lip hydrant).  Dry skin can sit on the surface, and who wants to kiss that?  Mix a little brown sugar and water until it gets to a pastes’ consistency.  Slather onto your lips, rub together and rinse for smoother lips.

You can also exfoliate your ARMPITS. I know personally, that scrubbing with a washcloth doesn’t get rid of a darkening pit.  My absolute favorite exfoliant is Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea Scrub (it’s not discontinued, but any sugar scrub works just fine).

Exfoliating your ELBOWS also helps to cut down on darkening.  Same goes for the knees.  Sloughing away that dead skin can help to reveal the radiant skin underneath!

Give it a shot, you honestly have nothing to lose.  When you exfoliate it’s kind of like shedding skin.  A newer you comes out of the shower looking better than ever!

Sephora also has a Sugar Scrub that will be in my bathroom soon!  I’m an exfoliating FREAK!  If you think I’m crazy, think again.  It’s a cheap spa treatment and leaves you skin more supple than a newborns.  Try it!

Just playing around in my makeup…  this is what I came up with!

**There are no head on shots because honestly, I just look weird on camera like that sometimes… 😦

I’m very satisfied!

 

It got a little disastrous in the middle, but I managed to pull it off!
